we are running PRTG 188.8.131.521 stable with a vmware vCenter 5.5. We use the SOAP Sensor for monitoring it. Today we got a problem on the connected hosts that told us problems with statistics data. Over vmware support we came to the end that the cause of this was a full log database on the vcenter. After clearing this, we figured out that the PRTG sensor is causing vmware to give an entry for this poll in the logfile. After a while (when polling every 60 seconds) this reached much rows as you can imagine - every 60 seconds there are 4 entries for each host.
This flooding on one hand is negative for performance and space in database, but also a problem for accessing "real" log messages in middle of this. What is the way to get rid of this ?!
